CEDAR LUMBER 3X6 CEDAR BEAMS supported by 6X6 CEDAR POSTS - TIMBER FRAME ACCENT TO CEDAR SIDED HOME IN NJ
CEDAR LUMBER 3X6 CEDAR BEAMS supported by 6X6 CEDAR POSTS


"Trimber-Frame"


I was at a Timber Frame show and the guy presenting spoke that term in disgust while describing people who use big cedar timbers as accent points instead of a real Mortice and Tenon Timber Framed structure.

I thought “What a great idea!”

Large Cedar Lumber beams and timbers are often used where both the strength and the appearance of the exposed wood beams are important especially in landscape, park and garden structures where weather resistance and natural wood look is desired.

Red Cedar Lumber has exceptional resistance to insects and decay, moderate strength, moderately soft, light in weight, completely non-resinous, works easily and is dimensionally stable with the lowest shrinkage of any North American Softwood species.

That plus its own natural preservative oils makes cedar lumber beams and timbers the perfect choice for your Pergola, Gazebo or Garden Arbor project.

  • NO. 2 AND BETTER Western Red Cedar Lumber is a knotty grade that meets appearance requirements. It has structural qualities however we do not grade for that.


  • We buy an appearance grade cedar - still big hunkin beams that can hold some load but you don't want to build a house on it. But perfect for Pergolas, Gazebos, Arbors, Awnings and Beams for decking, trim and Timber accent points.


  • Rough Cedar Lumber receives its texture from a milling process which uses roughened planer knives. The rough texture is clearly visible on all four sides. Surfaced Four Sides (S4S) has a smooth surface on all four sides uniformly sized with a high quality appearance.


  • MEASUREMENTS: Our Cedar Timbers 6" and up measure true 6" to 12" thickness. 2 - 4" run aprox 1/4" less. Surfacing will shed another 1/4" from thickness.

Western Red Cedar Large Support Timber


Here are a few things to keep in mind when you go with big timber. We CAN stain it in our machines however we do rack dry so one side will have pineapple marks from our feeder.

If you are going to use as a post that will be visible from 4 sides you will want to finish on the jobsite.


The other big thing is the TEXTURE. We can surface these beams however our professional advice is to leave them ROUGH. They will accept more stain, show fewer flaws and last longer than SMOOTH face texture.
